"Today we venture back to 1996 at Topanga Point in Los Angeles California, to see young surfers compete at the Hardware, Grom Pro Junior."



Hazardous seas and surf are expected periodically through the coming week, with Gales of 35 to 40 knots at times over the waters, large seas and high surf.


The City of Malibu is pleased to announce the approval of a long-term contract with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to establish a dedicated three-officer traffic enforcement taskforce to patrol Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) within City Limits.

On January 22, 2024, the Malibu City Council approved the contract for the term of two years, with a financial commitment not to exceed $2 million dollars. Active, visible traffic enforcement is one of the most immediate ways to make PCH safer, and will send a message that speeding and reckless driving will not be tolerated in Malibu.

Despite PCH being under Caltrans jurisdiction, the City remains committed to doing everything possible within its jurisdictional ability to make PCH safer. The City Council declared a local state of emergency on November 13, 2023, in response to the increasingly dangerous conditions on PCH, culminating in the tragic deaths of four Pepperdine students struck by a speeding motorist while walking along PCH in October, 2023.
